Add cream cheese and butter to a medium-size bowl. Using your electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add cocoa powder and beat until it is incorporated.
Add the brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and milk. Beat until the mixture is smooth. Sift in powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating after each addition. Once all powdered sugar has been incorporated, turn your mixer to high and beat until the mixture is light and creamy.
Transfer the cheesecake mixture to a small shallow serving dish and smooth the top.
Place whole Oreo cookies in a heavy-duty plastic storage bag and using the heel of your hand or a rolling pin gently crush the cookies until they are in small pieces. Spread the crushed Oreos over the top of the dip evenly to form the dirt
Use a small tube of black decorating icing to write the words "RIP" on the Milano cookies and insert them into the dip to form "tombstones." Scatter candy corn and or candy pumpkins around and add googly eyes if you have them.
Serve with graham crackers, gingersnaps, vanilla wafers or apple slices for dipping.
